For a Hilton this was a slightly disappointing experience. Now, don't get me wrong, this place was perfectly adequate for visiting our nation's capitol as a tourist. But our room was shockingly small. The corridors were not air conditioned, and in June, it was miserable to make the short walk from the elevator to our room at the end of the hall. Maybe the AC was just broken during our visit.
Our room was clean and comfortable, and pretty quiet. The great advantage of this hotel is is proximity to the Metro stop and the adjacent mall.
The restaurant was weak at best. Our stay included free breakfast each morning, and we wished we had gone across the parking lot to the IHOP next door. Next time we will. The air conditioning was also out in the restaurant, but they brought in some noisy portable AC units.
It wasn't a bad experience at all. I guess I just expected a warmer, more upscale experience from this hotel. Would we stay here again? Maybe, because of the incredible convenience of the Metro, nearby dining, and the mall. But more likely, we will probably just stay in DC as close to the mall as we can get.
